Black Screen

Lens broke on my Pentax K-x. Replaced with a Pentax 18-55mm lens but now have black screen. What can I do to get the LCD back?

You could try pressing the INFO button a few times.
Otherwise if the camera was attached when the lens broke it is possible the camera was damaged in the fall as well.
